Energy analyzer with advanced functions
October 19, 2012 by Alison Dunn
Fluke Corporation recently introduced the Fluke 437 Series II 400 Hz Power Quality and Energy Analyzer featuring advanced power quality functions available in a rugged, reliable handheld tool. The Fluke 437 is the latest model in the Fluke 430 Series II Three Phase Power Analyzers, the first tools to use a patented algorithm, Unified Power Management, to measure and quantify energy losses due to harmonics and unbalance issues, allowing users to pinpoint the origin of energy waste within a system. The 435 and 437 models include PowerWave, a fast capture system that displays waveforms and half cycle RMS voltage and current values in full detail to measure interactions during switching operations to prevent motor/drive/load mismatches. Both are fully compliant with IEC 61000-4-30 Class-A. Each can monitor systems with up to ten power quality parameters on one screen, can record up to 150 parameters on four phases simultaneously, in accordance with the EN50160 standard, and are safety rated 600 V CAT IV/1000 V CAT III.
